Walking down the street
Saw a random picture of your face
Trying to get you out of my mind
But you won't go away
My eyes that cried, days and nights too

You were there for me, what a fool
I overlooked you and you were always there for me
I was there for you, time can't buy retro-respect
Hurting you was such a big regret

And now I'm on this miracle mile
Everything I touch runs wild
I spend my last to make you first again
Yes, I can see the trees again

The grass is never greener
Tell me why I didn't think about this before now
'Cause my baby's gone

Just don't know what to do about you
All broke up over you, just don't, just don't
Just don't know what to do about you
All broke up over you, just don't, just don't
Just don't know what to do about you
All broke up over you, just don't, just don't

Shelly moved away to Jackson, Mississippi
Where the grass is green and so pretty
She found her a preacher man
'Cause that's all she ever wanted

Life at home was very hard
Yes, I sent a million cards
Life without her there
This can't be true, no this isn't fair

Walking down the street calling your name
People think I'm going insane
This is just a terrible dream
And my mind can do without it

I drown myself in whiskey, grass and beer
Love, I was wishing you were here
But here's a toast to you and your new found friend
I'm gonna be missing you
I just don't, I just don't 'cause my baby's gone

Just don't know what to do about you
All broke up over you, just don't, I just don't
Just don't know what to do about you
All broke up over you, just don't, I just don't
Just don't know what to do about you
All broke up over you, just don't, I just don't
